Publisher's Description

photo-eye has a limited amount of this special offer, which contains a copy of the book Lago SIGNED by Ron Jude and an unsigned copy of the Lago LP by musician Joshua Bonnetta.

About the book: 

In Lago, Ron Jude returns to the California desert of his early childhood as if a detective in search of clues to his own identity. In a book of 54 photographs made between 2011 and 2014, he attempts to reconcile the vagaries of memory (and the uncertainty of looking) with our need to make narrative sense of things. Using a desolate desert lake as a theatrical backdrop, Jude meanders through the arid landscape of his youth, making note of everything from venomous spiders to discarded pornography. 

About the LP:

The two compositions revisit the sites of Jude's initial photographs in and around the Salton Sea in the Southern California desert, and use site-specific field recordings and analog processing to craft an aural counterpoint to the photographs themselves and the photographic process. Contact microphones and hydrophones were used to gather sounds from flora, desert refuse, architectural ruins, and the Salton Sea itself to create an expanded study of the acoustic ecology of the area. The work weaves together location recordings and interviews to construct an acoustic portrait of the desert that is steeped in intimations of narrative dealing with loss, history, and a landscape haunted by a specter in darkness. Lago (the LP) is an attempt to enter into the perceptual horizons of the desert while also engaging a past that shapes the encounter. (run time 44 minutes)
